    What about Guptill? Who else could open?

    Should open with Munro
    Anyone is a candidate except for Rutherford who avgs 14 in List A.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yeah, but your posting rate was too slow, which put too much pressure on the later posters to try and go too big, too early.

    Incidentally, what a treat to hear Coney commentating on radio again. He's not bad as a TV commentator, but he's superb on radio.

    Seeing as he is in England all the time I wish Sky or TMS would use him more, he is very good.

    Nonsense. It may have seemed slow because of my monotonous, some might say boring reliance on my go-to posts and bread-and-butter subject matter, but actually I was posting at a perfectly acceptable rate for today's conditions.

    They will probably go with Rutherford, but I think Latham would be a better bet.

    Unless Ryder was inspired by Guptill's brave innings and declares himself available

    Modern posters should have no problems with 6, 7, or even 8 PPO.

    So NZ and England politely taking turns to win matches. Can confidently predict that NZ will take the second test now

    I find it bizarre that we're suddenly winning ODIs again and as I posted before, with Mills bowling really well and Elliott in the side it's like we've gone back in time to 2009. We really were horrible in ODIs in the years between then and the South Africa tour.

    I think the key to TH's success was timing his power play when Trott was batting.

    We win a game where Mills doesn't bowl at the death?

    Coincidence?

    Same.

    It's rather strange.

    Tonight was perhaps more encouraging than the SA tour because we actually managed to chase a total, rather than forcing a choke. We used to be excellent chasing, then we went through a period where our batsmen looked like they had no idea what to do.

    I still don't think our tactics are great, but Williamson is really having an impact. Has the ability to score off most bowlers, and wants big runs when he gets in.
